As the coronavirus epidemic is weakening in France, the lockdown exit scheme and reopening calendar depend on the incidence rate above the threshold of 400 cases for 100,000 inhabitants within a department. This Tuesday May 4, 2021, the incidence rate is no longer over 400 in any department in France.

Normal life has never been this close in a long time. As the coronavirus epidemic is weakening and the vaccination campaign is improving, France is moving to the first step of the four-step lockdown exit plan. It also includes major reopening: therefore, from May 19, 2021 the French will be able to return to terraces, as well as cultural places, and curfew will be delayed, until it is fully lifted on June 30, 2021.

Yet, although these easing measures are to occur on a nationwide basis, the government keeps curbing leverages for themselves in places where the epidemic circulation is still too active. In concrete words, it means that when a department or a metropolis has an incidence rate over 400 cases for 100,000 inhabitants, or experiences a sharp epidemic surge, the reopening calendar can be stopped while the situation is improving.

This Tuesday May 4, 2021 there is not a single department in France above this decisive threshold - according to consolidated data as of May 1, 2021.

As France is on curfew from 6 p.m., the incidence rate by department remains an indicator to monitor very closely to know more about the evolution of the epidemic. As a matter of fact, even though departments exceeding the threshold of 200 positive cases for 100,000 inhabitants were first to make new measures to fight against the spread of the epidemic, including implementing extended curfew, brought forward to 6 p.m., the entire country now has to comply with the measure until the situation improves.
